The MEd in Mentoring offers a specialist pathway developed to
reflect the growing role of the work based mentor/coach in all
phases of education (pre-school, primary, secondary and tertiary,
including higher education).
All participants have access to a resource centre with
supplementary materials, web links and electronic resources and
materials supported by the University's library.
In each of Stages 1 and 2, you choose three 20-credit modules
(120 credits in all). Three of these six modules (60 credits) must

- Mentor Training and Management
- Theory and Practice of Mentoring
– but your other three modules in Stages 1 and 2 can be chosen
from the wider portfolio of options (which varies from year to
year) available within our overall MEd provision.
After completing the three core modules (60 credits) you will,
if exiting at this point, be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate in

120 credits) qualify you for a Postgraduate Diploma in Education.
